I Became the Villain’s Pendant


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Ji Yan crossed over into a Mary Sue book and became the male lead’s vicious younger sister. She was a weak waste that didn’t even have a spiritual root.

While other people practiced fasting, she had to eat three meals a day. While other people engaged in battles, she was gasping for breath when she climbed up the stairs. While other people leaped onto roofs and vault over walls, just flipping over a wall will cost her life.

The Justice Sect: She colluded with the devil clan and planned to hold us back!

In order to deal with the devil, the Justice Sect offered the waste to the Devil Clan leader, Yin Xuezhuo.

After some time passed, the Justice Sect and the Devil Clan were surprised to find that no matter where the Devil Clan leader went, there was always a small young girl hanging on his body. The Devil Clan leader was carefully feeding her while he carried her. However, he was still disgusted by her.

Ji Yan: “Yin Xuezhuo, I’m hungry.”

Ji Yan: “Yin Xuezhuo, I’m sleepy. I have to sleep for four hours a day.”

Ji Yan: “Yin Xuezhuo, I think I caught a cold because I was blown by the cold wind last night.”

Ji Yan: “Yin Xuezhuo…”

Yin Xuezhuo: “Shut up!”

【Devil Clan Leader】

As the King of the Devil Realm, Yin Xuezhuo was temperamental and crazy. He was fond of killing people. People would be terror-stricken whenever they heard his name.

But he never imagined that he would be controlled by a mysterious force that forced him to always be within ten steps distance of a young mortal girl.

All her pain, injuries, and sickness would be shared with him.

If she died, he would die.

The devil was furious. He was very irritable every day.

Ji Yan felt that this mysterious force might be called “the system”.

The transmigrated heroine complained to the author about how pitiful the villain is and how hypocritical the original FL and ML are. And then because of her comment she was transmigrated into the book and her life was connected to the villainous ML so that he can't kill her.

This is a typical shitty book that's full of cliches and the FL is a type of person that likes a character just because of his good appearance no matter how evil he is. I am extremely appalled by how the ML... more>> is always killing whoever crosses his way and how the FL just shrugs their deaths off like it was nothing and continuously justifies his killing saying he has lived a painful life, he doesn't think like a normal human etc.

I don't know why this type of characters are always associated with cool and cute by readers.

If you are a person who just wants to pass time and likes a shitty characters such as these then this book is for you. <<less

3.5/5: slightly better than ok.

Some stuff concerning the translation:

While I've read up to c40 of the translation by Sleepy Translations (the latest chapter as of the writing of this review), it's actually the equivalent of the 1st half of chapter 13 of the raws. I don't mind translators splitting up chapters to release, but I wish they could label them like the raw chapters to avoid confusion. Otherwise, who knows which 'chapter 20' you're talking about?

Anyway, I mtl'd the story up to chapter 22 of the raws, so in reality... more>> my review is probably for something around chapter 70 of the translation, and about one-fifth of the actual story if all the chapters are the same length.

Actual Review:

It's a story with a premise that's not wholly new, but still interesting.

MC transmigrates into a novel as a cannon fodder supporting female after sympathizing in the comments/reviews with the 'pitiful' villain of the novel. Meanwhile, the actual villain/ML may have a sad past but is totally a psycho now and indeed treats human lives like grass (MC realizes this shortly after transmigration, and regrets her decision to sympathize). The MC is a normal-ish modern girl in a new, weak body, who is sadly quite incompetent regarding anything cultivation, alchemy, and artifact-related.

ML and MC are tied together by the system so that he also experiences her physical pains and discomforts, can't leave a radius of 10 feet around her, and will die if she dies. They start at odds but forced to stay together due to the system, with ML vowing to kill her but unable to, even trying to take care of her since the system forces him to. As the story progresses they get more and more used to each other and ML stops being quite as homicidal. It's the kind of story where MC reforms ML through the power of love or something.

There is a lot of death in this book, mostly of unnamed side characters that the ML simply slaughters. Since I don't particularly like either the ML or the MC, I wasn't very invested in their relationship, but it'll be an alright book to kill time once I can binge it. <<less

At first, I don't really like the crazy psycho ML. And then, author told us his backstory ... more>>

He is so innocent. Just because the heroine give him a name, he give her his most precious thing. Mtl didn't give an exact name of that thing, but it is a very important and vital thing of ML


I love how innocent and simple he is. I love how much he pampered and care MC with his own way. Simple, pure and innocent. Just because he met a scum woman (Heroine), he end up hard to believe in other people, mistrustful, and full of hearted and revenge towards human

I am so curious about how author will wrap it up. I hope author can give a satisfactory ending. It's still ongoing, and now it reach chapter 84. I want to wait until it finished so I can finally rest in peace knowing ML's ending. I really want my cinnamon roll ML have a happy ending and finally can break free from those horrible people <<less

This one is a decent novel. I lost count how many time ive cried lol especially when it comes to their raw emotions. Though it may seem a bit draggy at some point, but I think its worth reading.

If you manage to find the author's notes, do check it out because it has explanation sometimes regarding things that you may wanted to question.

And im surprised to see in extra; how the paranoid ML became a good father (instead of a father that ignores his son because hes jealous of FL's... more>> caring towards the son, which most cn novel has) so this is a plus point. <<less

I gave it 5 stars because I enjoy it. The ML is the definition of a villain, while the MC is helpless against his doings at first then turned to the point where she support him because she too, had enough of the main character.

She already arrived at the time where the ML is already blackened. And she, an ordinary human without an ounce of power, can't do anything but survive at any cost.

Maybe if she arrived early? She arrived at the time where the ML hasn' t blackened yet,... more>> there might be a chance to make him a rational character but unfortunately, she came late.

Anyways, I hope this will continue and the characters will have a character development. I really wanted the ML to heal.

Its fun and sad, the ML's tragic life and the orig FL's life. They deserved better.

As for the main characters, including the supporting character of the orig story. I have nothing to say, I don't like them anyway, maybe because of what they're being portrayed in the story?

I only see them as hypocritical righteous people who thinks themselves are good except for that one person who tried to help FL in the early chapter.

I read the raws and it really made my head hurt, so I stop and just wait for the TL. Haha.😂

Gladly, it was picked❤️ <<less

People are complaining about how the ML just keeps killing people randomly and how the FL just accepts it. FIRST, it's the ML's character setting. It's how he is just born with it and in some ways, the supposed heroine leads him to be more savage. SECOND, the FL is witty and fun. Take note that she is just a mere MORTAL. People complaining here that she's so weak and just do nothing but cry is just like the mob chara's in this novel. She is weak, yes, but she... more>> got brains and she got some award-winning acting talent. And for people saying that she didn't stop the ML from killing, she did actually, she did manage to stop him. <<less

This one dosen't drags the good plot & ends timely with satisying ending. And majorly the villainous ML really does deserves DEEDS that desevers bearing a villain title & the FL though is a little bit goody shoes but she dosen't goes out of her way to become a mary su character. Lots of satisying face slapping, fluffy pet moments, good tsundere ML comedy and a well satisying plot

I dropped this novel, I forgot why tho and then I decided to picked it up again AND I DONT REGRET IT 😭😭😭

ML is the literal villain, not like the fake villains in the most transmigration novels are.

The plot is little bit confusing bcs I finished it by mtl-ing, but from what I picked up, the romance is sweet and there are a little bit of angst to give a spice for the story.

... more>>

our ML is a vicious villain. He was tortured and betrayed by the novel's original FL and wanted a revenge to all humankind. Ji Yan's mission was to change ML's ending and killed original FL and ML. Yin XueZhuo and Ji Yan were bound by system to share each other's pain and they can't separate from each other more than 10 steps. Gradually they fell in love, but towards the end, Ji Yan's soul was unstable. To save her, Yin xuezhuo planned to sacrifice a lot of human's soul (i forgot how much maybe thousands, I forgot sorry 😭) to save Ji Yan. Ji Yan found out and feel so bad about it, bcs shes a human and what Yin Xuezhuo did was basically so inhuman. To make Yin Xuezhuo's plan failed and save humankin, Shao Xin decided to kill Ji Yan. Ji Yan was killed and her soul went to several bodies for a hundred year. Yin Xuezhuo was devastated and gave an order to stop killing human (because he didn't know where Ji Yan's soul was. He can accidentally kill Ji Yan's soul in another body). He repented what he did. After a hundred years, they met again. He found out that Ji Yan was transmigrated from another world and in the end, they have a cute little devil baby 😍😍

I usually like the wicked male lead and funny female lead pairing but unfortunately this story has a MC who gets treated like garbage by everyone and ends up with a guy who barely tolerates her.

From the start he is pretty awful to her and doesn't show much care for her even after 80 chapters.

Not to mention all the other characters are really repulsive. It wouldn't be so bad if the ML hadn't been so in love with the og FL but absolutely everyone is so it just feels like... more>> the MC is left with whoever is willing to extend whatever fleeting kindness they give to her on whim. <<less

Idk why the ratings for this are so low. I also don't like how ML just kills people and FL doesn't seem to care too much about it AT THE BEGINNING but imo, this aint a bad read.

However, romance is the sole focus of this novel, so if you prefer more action-type and adventure genres then you wouldn't get too invested reading since the pacing is also quite slow. Well, most of the story consisted of FL and ml's interactions, which were fairly entertaining and comedic. It's funny how the... more>> FL scolds people lol.

I was intending to rate this 5, but the later chapters made me feel it kinda got draggy. (Mainly towards the very end)


Also, I found it quite unbelievable for FL to not have a change in personality even after 100 years. I mean, even just a short 3 years could change a person, so I was wondering why she didn't, unless she spent those years mostly in hibernation. But it was mentioned that she did live different lives. But I guess fine, it's fiction.


ML doesn't really change much either. Villain till the end. He did have a backstory and reason on why he became like that though. Also I agree with the other review, idk if it was the mtl, but when I got to the ending chapters, I just wanted to finish the story and move on lol. Still worth a read and a fairly entertaining novel for sure though. <<less

I'm surprised this story has so many negative reviews. I love it so much I've already read it 3 times. I love me a messed up, psycho-turned-sweetheart male lead--the crazier, the better. And that's exactly the kind of ML you'll get here.

Yin Xuezhuo is one mentally f*cked up ML. He's violent, heartless, cruel and sadistic. He hates human beings with a passion and tries to kill FL multiple times before realizing that her pain causes him pain. Over the course of the story, his feelings for FL gradually transform from... more>> hate to annoyance to interest to fondness and finally to love. He has a strong reason for being so cruel and hostile, and you will definitely shed tears for him when his back story is revealed.

One of the things that I loved about this story is that FL (and ML) are not perfect beings. FL really struggles with ML's treatment of her. She often feels like she's just an amusing pet or toy and eventually throws a temper tantrum over it. ML responds by showing her what a real pet is, and, after reflecting, she comes to realize that maybe she misunderstood him. So she adjusts her thinking appropriately and does her best to try to see things from his perspective more. It sounds like such a simple thing, but seriously, how many romance novels have you read where the MCs reflect on their actions and realize they were wrong?? Not many, right?

This story isn't for everyone, but if you like yanderes, bullied FLs turned into pampered lovers, action-filled plots and transmigrated into a book stories, you'll probably like this! <<less

I read all the novel, and actually it's a nice and flufy one if we forget that our ML its a little weird on the head, and until near the midle of the story we see why our FL Ji Yan is a pendant for Yin Xuezhou (the villain and our male lead). I must say that she is a little dumb sometimes, but if we see the world like she do, we can understand why she acts like that... more>>

she even ask her self if she has Estocolmo síndrome when she realize that she loves our ML, and lets be honest Zhouzhou is the most anoying loving man even when he don't know how to love someone


Basically I fell in love with our clumsy villain, and our clumsy Cannon foder female reader. <<less

It was a really good read to me, all it matters if it suits your taste.

The original translator has dropped this novel at chapter 69, but it is only in fact chapter 21 in the mtl. So I recommend starting from there if you want to read the mtl :)

Note: chapter 69 by Sleepy Translations is just around chapter 20 of the actual novel.

It's boring at the first 50 chapters (of the actual novel) because they are so clingy to each other, but there's no feelings involved yet - or maybe there is, but they don't realize that yet. However, once they start realizing their feelings, the plot started to move as well and things became interesting. ML is a natural cold-blooded killing machine and I commend the author for that plot twist that will address his killing sprees.... more>> There were times that I smiled like a fool and there were times that I cried.

I found an excerpt of MC's system's POV that will somehow describes this novel:

"It may have taken a fake revenge script. This is actually just a brainless love story, right?! The system wants to quit."

I hope someone continues to translate this novel. As someone who read the mtl, I know that so much has been lost in the machine translation. To better understand the plot and characters, it would be best if a proper translation is done for this. <<less

Ok...I couldn't stop myself and MTL the rest of the story.

I LOVE IT. Translatornim does a great job! And I hope they continue to translate the rest because a lot more is coming!

MC is so realistic and ML is redeemed so hard!!!! It's funny, romantic, sad and a little dramatic. Lot of development for JiYan and her feelings for XinZhuexuo~

... more>>

So things starts to get serious when XZ realises he is interested in her, in a new way he hasn't experienced before. JY noticed a lot earlier. Then comes trouble. XZ is obsessed with vengeance and JY doesn't really want to stop him. She understands his hatred. However, it was really hard to change his nature as a demon, he wanted to kill kill and kill. Despite being soft and lovely with her, he was still despicable with other humans, JY was distressed she could not change the ending. Later JY is attacked by the Wanqui? Sword that is fatal to XZ, she barely survives and begs XZ to retreat and kill YinMiaoru? other time. Stuff happens.... They meet other nightmares and the sword is in their possession, XZ transfers her soul into the sword to keep her safe? Something like that in a moment of danger. But when placing it back to her body it was not fully integrated!!! So XZ wanted to kill like 10, 000? humans to carry out this ritual to fully restore her soul, if not she was going to dissipate and the cycle of reincarnation would continue, I think.

JY does not agree with this, XZ plans to kill everyone, yep rumbling; YM was killed so JY's mission was completed and had one hour!? to decide if go back or stay. She chooses to stay. But her soul is incredibly weak despite XZ efforts. Then this : friend' of hers sells her out, the humans who survived because JY begged captured her in order to stop the ritual. They lock her up in a box underground, yep no air. XZ is enraged and when he finds her, her soul is already gone.

I was crying ma heart out.s


That's all I'm going to say~ I lot more happens~~

Just wanted to rant about how much I love it~~

Best Redemptions ever!!!

Super super MUST READ <<less

It's just not interesting. The characters have no chemistry. The MC doesn't do anything except be sick, get injured, and whine. The ML is a villain. Just because he has a tragic backstory doesn't justify him rampaging around and killing people all the time. And the MC should be way more upset when he does kill people around her (and often because of her). But she isn't, because she has the personality of a limp noodle.

Don't bother, this story is not worth your time.

This story is so fun. I got hooked by the couple of chapters translated and started reading the original. The story is still developing and has its comedic moments, a good backstory for the characters, some amazing battles that leave you on the edge of your seat hoping the characters will be ok, and just the right ammount of unexpected romantic but sweet interactions. Don't be fooled though. The characters are not how you expect them to be and have deeper reasoning behind their actions. I especially love that aspect... more>> in this story because it speaks about anger, resentment, guilt, being judged, and other harsh but relateable things that we go through as a person. Touching even on realistic situations that happen in the world to your average person like what happened to our cute MC and ML. It really makes you more excited to see what will happen next, as the author has a great ability of building character development between the MC and ML to the surrounding characters. Hopefully both of them (and certain others) can get their happiness.

An update in December. I actually dropped this story a while back. Started losing interest in it after the actual second portion started. It's still in the works but from what I've read it just started to become really boring for me. After how the last arc ended and all, I can't help but compare it with how slow the new arc started out. Will try picking it up though to atleast finish the last chapters of it. I still want to see the HE of my MC and ML of course! <<less

Personally I enjoyed it even tho the FL wasn’t to my liking. I got what I wanted tho, which was an evil, villain ML so I’m relatively satisfied. Tho I wish they interacted with the female protagonist more from where I read up to.

I don’t really find the FL likeable but well, she’s tolerable for me.

The romance is ehhhh, I don’t really care that much. ML’s appearance being described a lot is mehhh, don’t really need to emphasise his handsomeness, pale skin as white a a ghost and black ink... more>> hair all the time. Plus there’s FL using metaphors for stuff like periods, causing a huge misunderstanding to the ML getting everyone to find the ‘great aunt’ which injured her, it was kinda funny but at the same time, she could’ve just been honest but yeah, don’t expect much from Chinese people anyways

personal enjoyment 4/5 <<less

This one, male lead like to kill and run everywhere, tbh, this kind of killing, ofc have to get used to it liao, people try to kill him, kill back lor. An eye for an eye. This is cultivation world hello. Dog eat dog world okay??? U think got kindness and hope roaming around the world, is it?? Female lead not saint but say she saint lmao this part I disagree, she very chill and stuff but... more>> she gets used to the killing by the male lead, after all, he's preventing her from dying and doesn't try to actively mu*der and hate her just bc she got no roots lol.

cliche would be like yada yada og FL and ML is hypocritical or whatever. That one, get used to it okay???

anyway, book not bad, but not super amazing either that you want to reread and reread again. I only read this book for yandere lol. Its not an insufferable read, but if u got morals and never read cultivation novel before with leads who kill at the speed of light, then not for u. <<less
